storm sandy. you can clap for that. that is right. [applause] the servicemen and women and the veterans and their families were here with us this morning are living monuments to that service. their commitment to serve, their willingness to volunteer should be inspiration and is an inspiration to me and it should be to you and i know it is. in spite of all the talk of how divided we are as a nation, how we are as a country, more and more americans are coming together to serve each other every day. volunteers in america is at a five-year high. in 2011, americans spent 8 billion hours giving back to their communities, enough hours to build the entire state building more than a thousand times over. [cheers and applause] you represent that. you're organizing food drives, mentoring children from the building playgrounds and so much more. when i look out and see you all and the kids here today, your service is having an even greater impact because you're in selling what my wife and i and brother and sister-in-law and my sister and brother-in-law are trying to do with our kids, instill

know, i was on cnn today and i could not see the images of the press conferences of sandy hook in new ubtown, connecticut but i could hear the mothers speak. as i heard them speak it raised goose bumps on your back and on your arms. you know it -- their words were like a knife cutting through butter. we all have a responsibility to those kids. we have a responsibility to victims of massacres across the nation that seems to be more and more common place to do something responsible and safe that does not violate the second amendment but gives us stronger, safer, more responsible gun laws in this nation. >> you said you don't see yourself riding into the sun set right away. are you considering running for governor of california? >> that's a new question. i haven't gotten that one in a while. just joking. i think i have spoken on that issue enough. i would be honored to continue to serve in public life. for now, i'm looking to finish my term and focus on my job whether it is immigration or responsible gun safety laws, whether it is balancing our own budget. by the way, we talk about c

are warning us over and over again. you're going to have more sandy hook massacres, you're going to have more sandy storms, like the superstorm sandy. this president has not done enough on climate. and it's always number three to him. i think 20 years from now it's going to be number one on the assessment of his legacy. i think he's got to step up to the plate. one thing he hasn't done and nobody has put forward yet, he could call for a bilateral summit with china on climate. the two biggest carbon polluters have never sat down and talked. i think he's got to be bold on immigration, he's bold on guns. if he can get bold on climate he would be a transformational president. >> bold on five things? >> if anybody can do it, barack obama can do it. >> thanks, we appreciate it. ahead, we'll talk to cyndi lauper. she's a political activist. we'll talk to her ahead about her role. that's in the next hour. stay with us. you're watching our special inauguration coverage here on cnn. officemax can help you drive supply costs down... and down. use your maxperks card and get a 10-ream case of of

accomplishment on the political side. big disappointment. climate. when you have sandy come through and do what it did to new york city and you have a dust ball forming in our heartland and wildfires and no action on climate. that is a big disappointment. he has to do something. he has a rainbow coalition but a green stripe that has not been attended to. >> you know, anderson, what's interesting to me about what alex said is that the republican party is now at a 26% approval rating. that's not good. while the public is much more pessimistic than it was four years ago about president obama, the republican party has to do something. this works for the president. the republican party is divided. maybe he can pick off a bunch of republicans and, so, as he heads into his second term, he has a very, very big agenda, very ambitious, maybe overreaching a little bit, but it's in the republican self-interest to work with him. as we look ahead, you're making a face at me. maybe that's because you shaved your mustache and i'm seeing your upper lip. don't you think there's a need for republicans now to work

you wonder because of superstorm sandy and the amount of money, if you are going to talk about the budget, you have to have this conversation about the climate since these natural disasters clearly are becoming more and more, but i want to point out a quote that barack obama said in an interview five years ago when he was still running for president, and he compared himself to reagan. he says i think ronald reagan changed the trajectory in america in a way that richard nixon did not and in a way that bill clinton did not. the reason i point out that quote. i thought it was an important quote, and it gave you a sense of what kind of president obama wanted to be, and i think you've heard in the maugral address today in the way that president obama believes ronald reagan mainstreamed the conservative movement in the 1980s, that one of the things he wants his president to do is to basically mainstream the liberal progressive movement in the same way, so if the country is, say, center or center right, you can have this argument that when he leaves that he has mainstreamed it and moved t

that? >> i have some circumstantial evidence. look at the fiscal cliff vote and look at the sandy vote. a microcosm. what you're finding there is john boehner willing to break what is called the hastert rule, which is that to pass measures with majority democrats when they really need to be passed. i have no illusions every bill is going to go down that way. and then with the debt ceiling, same thing. i do think there's some evidence that republicans are saying, you know, in part for public image reasons but maybe in part because of good economic reasons, we can't keep whacking away at the economy like this to please our base we ha. >> it's not about the two parties necessarily shifting their philosophical positions or moving together but more of a practical decision by the house leadership to recognize the limits on what they can accomplish with the majority in the house and the limits in terms of the public support for their position. you know, one of the things, chuck, the president used the campaign to do was to try to lay out in front of the public the competing visions for a

bush tax cuts for all, but the wealthiest. also in a hurricane sandy really package. the president has had to rely in the house on a coalition of almost all of the democrats and a handful of republicans. neil. neil: it is interesting that he did not give up on this idea of the privilege versus those who are simply trying to get by. i wondered, was he trying to say get ready for more going after the rich? it was nancy pelosi and chuck schumer who said they believe taxes on the rich should go up. more taxes on the wealthy and the rich should just get over it. what do you make of that tone? >> i think you are absolutely right about that. the issue of income inequality. he said very clearly last week that he expects to see a balanced approach towards deficit reduction going forward. that includes more revenues. we presume that means more tax revenues from wealthier families, wealthier americans. neil: all right. this is probably one of those shots that you will not see too often. beyoncÉ and paul ryan. we will just leave it at that. just maybe one of those that i am the only one on the pl
